The difference is that I can't recall a Christian country that kills you, stones you or stops Muslims practicing. But I can name many Muslim countries that stop Christians practicing.
Anti-Catholic animus in the United States reached a peak in the nineteenth century when the Protestant population became alarmed by the influx of Catholic immigrants. Some American Protestants, having an increased interest in prophecies regarding the end of time, claimed that the Catholic Church was the Whore of Babylon in the Book of Revelation. The resulting "nativist" movement, which achieved prominence in the 1840s, was whipped into a frenzy of anti-Catholicism that led to mob violence, the burning of Catholic property, and the killing of Catholics.This violence was fed by claims that Catholics were destroying the culture of the United States.
The issue persisted throughout the campaign. As in 1928, bigots and extremists on the right continued to issue warnings that the Pope would be governing America if Kennedy were elected. Anti-Catholic tracts were distributed to millions of homes, along with radio and TV attacks and countless mailings. Kennedy won by the barest of margins…

FBI Agents Cleared in Shooting Death of Muslim Leader
The FBI agents who shot and killed radical Muslim imam Luqman Ameen Abdullah broke no laws and will not face any charges, Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox announced today.
The shooting took place on Oct. 28, 2009, when the FBI raided a warehouse in Dearborn, Mich., and attempted to arrest Abdullah and four others on multiple federal criminal charges, including conspiracy to receive and sell stolen property, mail fraud and illegal possession of firearms and body armor.

Do you enjoy spreading fear around like manure?

Islam needs more tolerance, not more mosques
During the last few centuries, fundamentalist Christians have, for the most part, removed overt violence from their approach to the rest of the world.
At the same time, however, Muslim fundamentalists have increased their use of violence in both rhetoric and action, while moderate Muslims are rarely heard, either because of fear of or sympathy with their fundamentalist brethren.
The responses by much of the world during the past few decades to this increased level of violence have been to attempt to assuage Muslim terrorism by giving its fundamentalist perpetrators what they want. The general approach of many U.S. politicians has followed suit. Acting in this manner is like trying to extinguish a fire by throwing wood on it.
Actually, our politicians need to stop making excuses for the violence fundamentalist Islam supports
